Make Shamrock Shakes at home! Only a few ingredients are necessary and they are probably already in your kitchen. A great addition to your St. Patrick’s Day festivities!
I remember two things about St. Patrick’s Day from my youth: 1. wearing green to avoid being pinched at school, and 2. Shamrock Shakes. A few weeks ago I said to my boys, “Oooo! It’s Shamrock Shake season!” and they looked at me like I had antlers. I could not BELIEVE I had not yet introduced them to the good ol’ delicious green shake of the Irish. Except, I’m pretty sure they don’t originate from Ireland. Another YUMMY manufactured American recipe for the books.
